The team at Master Painters & Decorators Australia have now started the organisation of the 2022 Painting & Decorating Apprentice of the Year Competition, which will be a combined event with the 2022 WorldSkills Australia Regional Painting & Decorating Competition.

World Skills Australia has partnered with MP&DA and TAFE to run the 2022 World Skills Australia Regional Painting & Decorating Competition for painting apprentices in Western Australia.

WorldSkills competitions offer an incredible opportunity. Competitions allow you to measure your work performance against other people in your industry and region.
Competition results will make you stand out! Giving it a go will demonstrate to current and future employers the dedication you have towards your training and development.

The competition day has been locked in for Thursday 15 September 2022 held at MPA Skills Maylands Campus.

The presentation breakfast  where the winner of the WorldSkills  Australia Regional Painting & Decorating Competition will be announced, will be held on Friday 25 November 2022 at Crown.

The winner, runner up and third place of the 2022 MP&DA Painting & Decorating Apprentice of the Year Award will be presented during the Master Painters& Decorators Australia Awards Night on Saturday 12 November 2022 at Novotel Perth.

Invitations will be forwarded prior to the event. All finalists are given two tickets for the event, one for themselves and a partner, friend or family member.
